The Activation Strain Model of Chemical Reactivity

W.J. van Zeist, F.M. Bickelhaupt

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Herein, we provide an account of the activation strain model of chemical reactivity and its recent applications. In this model, the potential energy surface ΔE(ζ) along the reaction coordinate ζ is decomposed into the strain ΔE
